The NFL, Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) and Bud Light have partnered to launch the NFL Hispanic Heritage Leadership Awards Presented by Bud Light during the 2011 celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. The awards recognize the contributions of Hispanic leaders in each NFL market where each recipient will be recognized in-stadium at a Hispanic Heritage game in their local market.
With support from Bud Light, each award recipient will select an organization of their choice that serves the local Hispanic community to receive a $2,000 donation. Bud Light has been a longtime supporter of the Hispanic community and has contributed more than $64 million to Hispanic organizations since 1982.
